Grades 5-6 Book Club – The Wonderling by Mira Bartok Wednesday, Feb. 21 3-4 p.m. “Welcome to the Home for Wayward and Misbegotten Creatures, an institution run by evil Miss Carbunkle, a cunning villainess who believes her terrified young charges exist only to serve and suffer. Part animal and part human, the groundlings toil in classroom and factory, forbidden to enjoy anything regular children have, most particularly singing and music. For the Wonderling, an innocent-hearted, one-eared, fox-like 11-year-old with only a number rather than a proper name — a 13 etched on a medallion around his neck — it is the only home he has ever known. Unexpected courage leads him to acquire the loyalty of a young bird groundling named Trinket. Using Trinket’s ingenious invention, the pair escape and embark on an adventure that takes them into the world and, ultimately, down the path of sweet Arthur’s true destiny.”
